GNT to double capacity

spirulina-in-tablet-and-powder-formThe global market for food colouring is experiencing a strong rise in the demand for spirulina-based colouring foods according to the GNT Group which believes that it is excellently positioned to serve its clients’ needs today and in the future.

Currently, the family-based company says it produces enough spirulina to colour more than one billion portions of food per year. Thinking ahead of further growth, GNT has recently started the construction of an additional spirulina plant at its headquarters in Mierlo, the Netherlands, which will more than double GNT’s capacities for blue and green colouring foods.

The increasing scepticism of consumers towards additive colourants and the quickly developing application possibilities of spirulina are fuelling the demand all around the world, according to GNT.

“More and more major food and beverage companies are announcing the replacement of artificial colours. Being the only natural alternative to artificial dyes such as patent blue V (E 131) or brilliant blue FCF (E 133), the alga plays a highly important role in natural colour solutions”, said Dr. Hendrik Hoeck, Managing Director of the GNT Group. “Anticipating this role, GNT was the first to develop Colouring Foods from spirulina more than 20 years ago. That is why we can now offer an ample supply for current market needs and have the required processing technology and unique expertise to provide high-quality products and tailor-made application support.”

“With the new plant, we are completely fit for the future,” said Hoeck. “It will further expand and strengthen our position as clear market leader in the production of spirulina-based colour solutions.”
